Camp Intellect is an affordable summer program preparing middle schoolers for high school success. We provide specially designed virtual lessons, classes, and projects to build real-world English and science skills for rising 7-9th graders. This camp was the brainchild of two highschoolers- Helen Wu '21, a rising senior, and Jason Wang '22, a rising junior at Germantown Academy.
From the start, we created Camp Intellect with the intent of donating the entirety of our proceeds to COVID-19 relief. Both of us have close connections to many front line workers, and we see first-hand how much these individuals sacrifice each day to help others. We also realized that during these times, many summer educational opportunities have been canceled. Thus, we saw the perfect opportunity to use our skills to give back to our community, both by providing an accessible educational program and by alleviating the impacts of the pandemic.
After two sessions of our camp and over a month of work, we have raised over $5000! We have distributed this amount across 3 different nonprofits. $2000 of our funds have been donated to Save The Children's Coronavirus Response Fund, as we truly believe in their mission to help the next generation. At Camp Intellect, we believe that every child deserves a quality education without having to worry about whether or not their basic needs are being met, thus we #StandwithSave. We put many hours into ensuring Camp Intellect came to life this summer. The best way you can support us is by contributing a few dollars to our fundraiser.
Save The Children’s Coronavirus Response Fund helps make sure schools and community programs have the support needed to feed and educate children during the pandemic in rural America’s poorest communities. Globally, they also deliver medical supplies and host training to help health care workers protect themselves and prevent further spread of the disease in more than 100 countries.
